Antonia Coles of JTT Events provides advice, research and planning at a wide and varied number of events.  Here is her advice on how to achieve that special sparkle for your Christmas party and ensure it’s a real cracker!

  • Keep it simple and focused – make a decision and stick to it.
  • Don’t get carried away with “Ooh we could do this, and that".
  • Consider your guests when choosing your venue: where will they park, is it easy (and affordable) to get home, is the event affordable?
  • Make a list of what you want, and need to do.
  • Work with your chosen venue; what will they do decoration and novelty-wise, when do they need final numbers and dietary requirements? They will guide and help you.
  • Be clear to your friends/colleagues what to expect, what you need to know and by when (menu choices, times, dress)
  • Work to a tight budget.
  • If you want to add a special extra, decide upon it early and build it into your budget and into encouraging your guests to come along.
  • Don’t be afraid to have your party in the New Year. Lots of people are busy and strapped for cash in the run up to Christmas, and a New Year party gives everyone something to look forward to.

 Have fun!
